If you think Florida is often overlooked on artists’ tour schedules, imagine how residents of Bangor, Maine must feel. One of those residents, and perhaps the most famous of all Maine residents, is legendary horror writer Stephen King. That is of course when he isn’t hanging out in Sarasota, his other place of residence.
Last Friday was not a quiet night on the streets of Bangor, as Rancid and Dropkick Murphys rolled into town. One would have to assume Stephen King is pretty hardcore considering the nature of his novels, but it’s still hard to imagine him partaking in debauchery with the rest of us normal people. To the surprise of, well everybody, including Rancid, he made an appearance at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion to engage in punk rock show with the best of them.
And if you aren’t sure that that’s him in that photo, this should disprove those theories.
If you follow Stephen King on Twitter it shouldn’t surprise you that he would show up at a Rancid show because he has been a vocal supporter for years.
